A Slow Train To Oranges

On my way to the farm! I have a seishun 18 youth ticket in my pocket and a day of slow local trains ahead--that means combing the beautiful western Japan towns and countryside for all the details a slow train will allow as we pass by. As an Aichi resident, I long for mountains and ocean! 

This time, I'm off to a Mandarin orange farm in Wakayama prefecture. It's a certified organic farm, so I'm hoping to learn a lot! And after about a week and a half on the farm, I'll head to Koyasan and the temples there for a night. I've got lots of warm clothes packed and my Japanese textbooks. Hope the people are nice! Hope it's not too terribly cold!

Hey Ruthie

My name is Joe Pinzone and I’m casting an international travel show about expats moving abroad. We’d love to film in Japan and wanted to know if you could help us find expats who have moved there within the last 15 months or have been there for 3-4 years, but recently moved into a new home. The show documents their move to a new country and will place the country in fabulous light. The contributors on the show would also receive monetary compensation if they are filmed. If you’d like more information, please give me a call at 212-231-7716 or skype me at joefromnyc. You can also email me Looking forward to hearing from you.
